Heavy rainfall and storms, or just a broken water main, can quickly pour gallons of water into your Sun Prairie home. The best way to prevent that from happening is with a sump pump installation. Smp pumps work by removing water from low-lying areas in your home, and displacing them outside. You may need one if you have a cellar, crawl space, or low-lying areas of your yard including storm shelters, root cellars, or lower-elevation rooms. This can help protect you and your property from significant water damage.

What is a Sump Pump?
Sump pumps are electric devices that are used to pump water out of areas of your home or business. They are important because they help to protect your property from excess water damage. In order to ensure that your property is best protected from these problems work with our plumbing experts at Cardinal Heating & Air Conditioning.
As your reliable sump pump contractors we can come to your home and determine what type of pump is best for you. From there, we are able to perform the installations according to manufacturer standards, so you can rest easy during the next heavy rain season knowing that your home is safe from damage.
The Types of Sump Pumps
When it comes to choosing a sump pump for your home, there are generally two main types of pump. They include:
- Submersible Sump Pump: This type of pump is typically installed in specially designed sump pits. This is an area where the majority of standing water would flow, either through drains or by the natural movement of water, and is often located in the lowest level in your home.
- Pedestal Sump Pump: The pedestal pump is made in such a way that the motor is above the level of water, and a lever is placed in the pit. When the lever detects rising water levels, the motor kicks on, removing excess water.
In the event of a power outage, there are backup pumps that run on battery power. These can be used as a secondary pump in the event that one's primary pump has failed. Our plumbing contractors will be able to help you choose the best style of pump for your home.
